Big Brother Australia's website...



  • Apparently Big Brother Australia's official website has been a magnet for WTF's this year. They have supposedly fixed the problems now, which means this is a bit late, but anyway.

    Number one problem was that "premium" signups were not being done securely.
    Second problem was that accounts were randomly failing once credit cards had been charged.
    Problem 3... A 14 day "trial" of the premium content was available for a week before the show started... It started counting from the date of signup even though it was useless at that stage.

    That's the big ones I can remember off the top of my head. I'm sure there are others given the quality seen so far. If they managed to ignore using HTTPS for credit card details, I'm guessing there's probably SQL injection vulnerabilities too. And no doubt other issues.

    Official site is http://bigbrother.3mobile.com.au/
    The problem itself is banned from being mentioned on the official site... For info on the problems, http://www.behindbigbrother.com

    Yeah. I sort of agree... But you'd think with the money they make off it, a decent programmer would be affordable.
